    It is EVICT MALIKI DAY + SEVENTY - SIX (76) or " E - M DAY + 76 "


    "..... despite the superiority of Maliki’s electoral coalition, the competing Shiite forces, the Kurds and the Sunnis, are together able to form a comfortable majority to prevent Maliki from remaining in office. "......................

    Maliki likely fears that if he rushes to do business with parties outside the Shiite alliance, his Shiite rivals would do the same and that they may have a better chance to win over the Kurdish and Sunni forces, because there is a general consensus among them to not keep Maliki in power.

    At the same time, the rest of the Shiite groups fear that this consensus is not solid enough to withstand discussing the details, and that going alone to the Kurdish and Sunni forces may put them in a weak bargaining position and make them appear responsible for breaking Shiite unity.

    An important factor here are the choices that the Sunni and Kurdish forces will make. If the Sunnis and Kurds rush to form ethnic and sectarian alliances, then the Shiite alliance may do the same.

    Some are proposing scenarios such as replacing Maliki with another figure from the State of Law Coalition as a compromise to ensure the continuation of the Shiite alliance.

    [* a source said in a statement to the Agency ((eighth day)) that there is an agreement semi-final between the U.S. and Iran to take on Ahmed Chalabi as prime minister for the next government as a compromise candidate.]

    Yet, such a solution may come at a later stage, after the favored options by most parties have been exhausted.

    What is certain now is that a harsh negotiating season will [ * HAS ] begin [ * BEGUN ] as the conflict moves from its electoral aspect into the closed negotiating rooms and deals among the elite. - - from al Monitor

    Generally, all are " waiting for the National Alliance to name its candidate, formally , to start negotiate with him. "

    "Everyone is waiting for the National Alliance to submit its candidate for prime minister, in order to other political blocs show their positions and give their candidates in the light of the selection of the National Alliance," noting that " National Alliance should submit its candidate for prime minister formally as soon as possible "because time is running."

    The recent period has witnessed a number of statements to many MPs about the nomination of a number of personalities to fill the post of Prime Minister, among them (Adel Abdul-Mahdi, Ahmed Chalabi, in addition to State of Law's candidate, the current Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.

    The Iraqi Supreme Court Certifies the 30 April General Election Result

    Posted by Reidar Visser on Monday, 16 June 2014 19:54

    It’s official: The provisional result of Iraq’s 30 April general election, published last month, has been certified by the federal supreme court.

    In the IHEC statement to this effect, there is a caveat. 4 seat winners have not been approved, and won’t be approved until they have been cleared of charges relating to serious crime cases against them. Pending settlement of the court cases, their membership in parliament will remain pending, and no replacement deputies will be appointed. Whereas this may sound somewhat messy, it is actually what happened also in 2010, when 2 seat winners were provisionally excluded. Back then, it took longer for parliament to reconvene than for the judicial authorities to settle one of the cases (and one candidate was voluntarily substituted by another candidate from his bloc), so no procedural problems emerged.

    With the general political climate in Iraq approaching boiling point, questions will inevitably pertain to the political affiliations of those 4 that were excluded. 3 of them come from a single list, the Sunni, pro-Nujayfi list that ran in Diyala province: Salim al-Jibburi, Raad al-Dahlaki and Umar al-Humayri. They have all been in various forms of conflict with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, and Jibburi (once an Iraqi Islamic Party member who cooperated with the first Maliki government) and Humayri (ex governor of Diyala ousted by Maliki allies) most bitterly so.

    Urgent .. Federal Court ratified the call candidates [Jubouri and Aldhlki]

    Wednesday, June 26, 2014 12:20

    [Baghdad - where]

    The Federal Supreme Court ratified the names of candidates for the [Diyala identity] [Salim al] and [Raad Aldhlki].
    A spokesman for the Supreme Judicial Authority Abdul Sattar Bayrakdar told all of Iraq [where] on Thursday that "the court has ratified today the names of the candidates [Jubouri and Aldhlki after resolving lawsuits filed against them and Nbarothma of the charges followed ..

    Still, before running to conclusions about another politicized court decision in Iraq, consider the fourth excluded candidate: Abbas Jabir al-Khuzaie, a seat winner in Qadisiyya province for Maliki’s own State of Law list. Khuzaie is a local politician from the Qadisiyya council who was once with the secular Iraqiyya before defecting to State of Law in 2011. He was then with the Independents bloc of Hussein al-Shahristani and may still be a member of that bloc subunit. Still, despite ongoing internal rivalry in State of Law, it seems unlikely that Maliki would fabricate an exclusion from his own rank in a situation where the loyalty of every new single Iraqi deputy is meticulously being monitored in the contest to form the biggest parliament bloc and supply the next premier candidate.

    The certification of the election result opens the door for government formation: The Iraqi president (or his acting deputy) must issue a call for the Iraqi parliament to convene within 15 days, i.e. at the end of June. Theoretically, parliament will then elect its speaker, and, within a month, a new president who will then charge the candidate of the largest bloc in parliament to form a government.

    For Iraqi politicians, despite the current crisis, the parliamentary government formation process is likely to remain the main political track going forward. It is a problem, therefore, that much US rhetoric on conditions for aid to the Iraqi government seem focused on ideas about some sort of national reconciliation initiative that would precede the delivery of further assistance. It is very hard to see how that would fit in with the Iraqi government formation logic. Whereas there has been much talk among Americans about imposing conditionality on future military assistance in Iraq, US rhetoric has been disconcertingly void of specific proposals for measures that would satisfy them. On the other hand, there is no lack of American suggestions for favourite cabinet line-ups that could be imposed, possibly even with Iranian support. Some of this thinking seems to belong to the era of the CPA in 2003–04, rather than in today’s situation.

    Meanwhile, ISIS continues its savagery, the Kurds consolidate their quasi-independence, and Maliki for once actually has an excuse for drumming up state-of-emergency rhetoric.


    *** Article 54: The President of the Republic shall call upon the Council of Representatives to convene by a presidential decree within fifteen days from the date of the ratification of the general election results. Its eldest member shall chair the first session to elect the speaker of the Council and his two deputies. This period may not be extended by more than the aforementioned period. ***

    Article 55 of the Iraqi Constitution, that "the House of Representatives shall be elected at the first session its president, then a first deputy and second deputy, by an absolute majority of the Council members by direct secret ballot."

    In addition, Article (70 / I) of the Constitution, that "elected by the House of Representatives from among the candidates President of the Republic, by a majority of two-thirds of its members, and if none of the candidates received the required majority, the rivalry between the two candidates who obtained the highest number of votes, and declared president of the gets a majority of votes in the second ballot. "

    Forces Under IS Banner Begin Infighting

    Forces Under IS Banner Begin Infighting

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Sunni tribes in Iraq that have been fighting under the black banner of the Islamic State (IS) have declared they will only pledge allegiance to the jihadists after the fall of Baghdad.

    Their announcement came days after the Reuters news agency reported that in Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city that fell to the rebels last month, IS had picked up dozens of former members of Saddam Hussein’s Baath Party because they had not made their vows to the new caliphate declared by IS.

    Although there has been no independent confirmation of the report, it is seen as the start of infighting between the different factions gathered under the IS banner.

    After crossing from Syria into Iraq the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria -- or ISIS as it was then still called -- was joined by a number of Iraqi groups and organizations.

    Among them was the Iraqi Tribal Revolutionaries, whose spokesman Sheikh Raad Abdul Sattar Suleiman told the pan-Arab Asharq Al-Awsat daily that the tribe is holding off on pledging allegiance to the IS. Suleiman is a member of the Dulaim tribe, which counts about three million members.

    “Iraqis are prepared to accept help from any party in order to defeat the gang that is ruling Iraq,” Suleiman said, referring to the Shiite government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. “We are Iraqis; we can change Maliki and his rule, and we will change the whole political process in Iraq.”

    He stressed that Iraq’s Sunni Arab tribesmen – not IS – had led the fight against government forces.

    “We are the ones who liberated Anbar and Mosul. ISIS does not have more than 2,000 fighters, while there are millions of tribesmen who are fighting this government to end its oppression and corruption.”

    At the same time, former senior Baath-members are heavily involved in the push by Iraqi Sunnis to reclaim power. Proof of this was found on memory sticks confiscated at the home of an IS military official, Abu Abdul Rahman al-Bilawi, after he was killed in Mosul before the city fell on June 10.

    Two key deputies of IS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who are charged with managing the territories controlled by the group, formerly held senior posts in the Iraqi military. They are a former major general in Saddam’s army, and a former lieutenant colonel in the Iraqi military's intelligence core.

    According to a report by Britain’s The Telegraph newspaper, some of the senior men working as “governors” under both deputies appear to have previous affiliations to the Baath party, or al-Awda (the Returning), as the movement calls itself now.

    Discontent in the insurgent ranks is reportedly on the rise since the secular ex-Baathists are not as radical as the jihadi fighters they have been fighting alongside.

    When IS started demolishing Sufi shrines near Mosul, the Army of the Men of the Naqshbandi Order protested. This Sufi military band is said to be led by Saddam’s former deputy Izzat Al-Douri, and to have set up front groups of Baathists, unified under the General Military Council for Iraq's Revolutionaries (GMC).

    There are reports of skirmishes between the two in the Diyala province and assassinations of IS leaders. According to the reports, in two weeks IS lost two leaders and a number of their assistants.

    As IS wants to quell possible dissident amongst the Iraqis inside its caliphate, 12 moderate Sunni clerics were killed in Mosul.

    Only two days after the fall of Mosul, IS fighters killed the imam of the city’s Great Nurridin Mosque, Muhammad al Mansuri, according to a UN official. Just four weeks later, Baghdadi held his first Friday sermon in public in the very same mosque.

    Two days later, 12 other imams who refused to pledge allegiance to IS were executed, the UN reported.

    Recently, IS showed Iraqi Sunnis what would happen if they do not conform to its rule: the village of Zowiya, near Tikrit, was changed to ruins, with 18 dead, and IS heralding the “cleansing” of the village in an Internet posting. It warned that “all those who may even think about fighting the Islamic State and conspiring against the caliphate can know what their fate will be.”

    As reported by the McClatchyDC news site, the village was home to many military officers and provincial government employees. Rumors spread that some villagers were plotting to form a rival force to counter the extremists – or Sahwa, the Sunni militia formed in 2006 to fight al-Qaeda.

    The IS wants “to tell the tribes that you cannot repeat what you did in 2006 and 2007,” one of the villagers said.

    In an apparent move to try to pry Sunnis away from their uneasy allegiance to IS, in Baghdad a former member of the Sunni resistance against the prime minister, Meshan Jibouri, has been appointed by the Maliki government to make the Sahwa ready for the fight against IS.

    Former Mosul Commander: This is Why City Fell

    Former Mosul Commander: This is Why City Fell

    Hidayat Abdul Karim: ‘I am sure the court will hang me without questioning.’

    ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Brigadier Hidayat Abdul Karim was the top military commander in Mosul, but among the last to learn about the Iraqi city’s fall to the Islamic State (IS) more than a month ago.

    He explained that as a Kurd he was virtually powerless in the Iraqi military: the army was so divided along ethnic and sectarian lines that his unit had no ammunition, and he was not told about Mosul’s fall until the next day.

    “I learnt about the fall of Mosul at 10 O’clock the next morning,” said Karim, who was commander of the Third Brigade in Mosul. He has been living in Erbil with his family since Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki singled him out for a court martial “for escaping from the battlefield.”

    Karim said that 85 percent of the Iraqi army is dominated by Shiites, with Kurds and Sunnis treated with suspicion and as outcasts.

    “Our brigade was under the command of the Kurds, so we did not have a single bullet to fire,” Karim said. “The Iraqi government had crippled our military unit because it was under Kurdish command. We did not have tanks and cannons -- not even ammunition.”

    Karim, who was promoted and assigned his new post in Mosul only 11 days before the city fell, said that despite his rank and position he did not have authority over an entire brigade: “In reality I was the commander of one-and-a-half regiment, and not a brigade.”

    The rebel forces seized control of Mosul on June 9, after the Iraqi army collapsed and retreated from the city without putting up a fight.

    “The Sunni soldiers knew what was going to happen, because 400 of them deserted 10 days before the IS onslaught,” said Karim, who also spoke about his own bravery and several wounds he suffered in fighting in Anbar province.

    “If I was in Mosul with 100 soldiers I would not have let this happen to the city. None of the brigades were under my control. Our forces had collapsed, but they weren’t telling me,” according to Karim.

    Speaking about his promotion, Karim explained he was chosen by Maliki because of direct support from the office of Jalal Talabani, Iraq’s Kurdish president who is also head of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) party. He has been out of the country since suffering a stroke in December 2012.

    Karim said the PUK had asked Maliki for command of a military brigade in order to stand equal with its rival, the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), which controlled two brigades.

    Karim said that after the fall of Mosul he issued orders for his men to shoot any soldier trying to flee. “Some high-ranking officers were begging the soldiers to let them escape,” he said.

    Karim added he believes that Baghdad lost control of Mosul long before the rebel assault: “The IS had supporters among the Sunnis in Mosul. Mosul was lost one year ago.”

    The military man said that Kurds were constitutionally entitled to 17 percent of positions in the military, but in reality they were given no more than two percent of the posts.

    Commenting on orders from Baghdad for his court martial, Karim blamed that on his deputy, a Shiite from Hillah.

    “He wrote a bad report about me and claimed that I surrendered the Third Brigade to Barzani (the Kurdish president) and that I fled from the fight,” Karim explained, calling the allegations “totally baseless.”

    He said he had carried with him only the emblem of his brigade, without touching 80 million Iraqi dinars that were in his safe: “I am sure the court will hang me without questioning.”
